So, um, why no Wii port? Why another collection game, for that matter? Will it have Chaotix? Will it have a PROPER port of Sonic CD for once (with or without Hataya's soundtrack - just fix the friggin' palette trickery like fades or Tidal Tempest's water, and rerecord the sound effects to not suck)? Will it include the various improvements from Sonic Jam? Do we really need to buy Sonic 1 again?What is ‘Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection’?
A hawk-eyed TSS reader has informed us about “Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection” (highlighted), which is listed in Gamestop’s latest release schedule. Priced at $29.99 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and due for release on the 10th February 2009, it appears SEGA haven’t yet given up on providing all of Sonic’s classics to current consumers. It makes sense - with half the community bitching about how much better the Mega Drive games were (which I can’t say doesn’t hold merit) it seems wise to let new gamers experience the hedgehog’s glory days. For fans, it opens up a whole new world of speculation — will SEGA provide loads of meaty bonus content ala Sonic Jam this time? Will players actually be able to play Chaotix without locating a 32X? What the heck does that mean for those that purchased Sonic 1 and 2 from Xbox Live Arcade?
Before we all go jumping the gun though, it’s important to note that SEGA haven’t officially announced such a title. Having said that, retailer’s secret schedules are regularly a source for getting to know of new projects ahead of time. Jot this down in your Sonic filofaxes as a ‘rumour’ for now. Many thanks to our anonymous tipster who sent this in - top stuff.
My guess: no. No to every single question posed. (Except the first two, since "no" doesn't make much sense, but whatever.)
